The penaeid shrimp farming industry is experiencing rapid growth. To reduce costs and labour, automation techniques such as counting and size estimation are increasingly being adopted. Feeding based on the degree of stomach fullness can significantly reduce food waste and water contamination. Therefore, we propose an intelligent shrimp farming system that includes shrimp detection, measurement of approximated shrimp length, shrimp quantity, and two methods for determining the degree of digestive tract fullness. We introduce AR-YOLOv5 (Angular Rotation YOLOv5) in the system to enhance both shrimp growth and the environmental sustainability of shrimp farming. Our experiments were conducted in a real shrimp farming environment. The length and quantity are estimated based on the bounding box, and the level of stomach fullness is approximated using the ratio of the shrimp´s digestive tract to its body size. In terms of detection performance, our proposed method achieves a precision rate of 97.70%, a recall rate of 91.42%, a mean average precision of 94.46%, and an F1-score of 95.42% using AR-YOLOv5. Furthermore, our stomach fullness determined method achieves an accuracy of 88.8%, a precision rate of 91.7%, a recall rate of 90.9%, and an F1-score of 91.3% in real shrimp farming environments.
